The course provides an introduction to digital literacy, but also caters for students with a diverse range of skills and knowledge in that learning tasks are primarily open in nature. The main aim of the course is to equip students with the requisite skills, knowledge and confidence to interact successfully with the USQ online environment. The course introduces students to some key concepts for the Information Age and familiarises them some commonly-used technology for managing digital information, particularly in the university environment, but also in social and work environments. The focus of the course, therefore, is on developing students' abilities to collaborate using digital technologies to locate, evaluate and disseminate online information-critical areas for navigating contemporary study and work environments.
